For Your New Beginning

By Amba Gale

May you step forward into
many new journeys
new islands for exploration and adventure.

May you arrive at each island, intensely curious, open, willing
to discover
what you didn’t know you didn’t know,
an experimenter,
an explorer,
fresh, and ready to pioneer.

May you move
in accord
with your essential nature.

May each of your islands
greet your arrival with invitation, welcome,
and celebration.

May you be open to surprises.

May the ferryman in his sturdy wooden boat
always be there for you,
to take you
to your next crossing,
after you embody the Teaching of that Island.

May you weather the rough crossings,
where the frigid wind howls and the waves grow high
with Faith,
a great sense of not knowing,
of Adventure,
of Beginning,
and a largess of spirit
your coming deaths,
and arrivals
with love.

Your sudden appearance and my willingness to be surprised meet and hold hands.…

Creating Spaciousness

Breathe. Let the light that is all around you enter through your crown chakra. Let it penetrate your Being. Feel The warmth of the fire within you. Know that you are loved. Align all the energies. Let them converge as one in the center of your Being. Breathe. Create space in time. All will come to pass in its own time. Don’t try to rush things. Breathe. Create room in time. Those creative possibilities are beautiful, all in their own time. Give yourself the gift of room in time. Let this knowing in your body and your heart lead the…
